    I upgraded to the 256GB version (refurbished for the same cost as the 128) from a 2010 MacBook Pro. So far, it's very much lived up to expectations. I don't need a powerhouse of a machine, and most of what I do isn't all that intensive, so this light, capable, attractive machine is gonna hopefully see me through the next 5+ (hopefully plus) years. That 2010 MacBook Pro lasted me 8, but it was upgradeable, whereas this isn't so... we'll see.

      He literally praises his iPad pro in the same video, you're just an Apple Fanatic with no valid opinions and lack an objective viewpoint for Apple products.
      Marques has liked his iPhone X and X's (but he did note the latter was just incremental in specs and Apple played it safe). He has also been begging for a modular MacPro since prior to his iMac his rig was the 2013 trashcan. If anything Marques is in favor of Apple products more so than any Windows product, he just doesn't take mediocre increments as a valid "premium" asking price.

    I Think the reason Apple haven’t put FaceID into a MacBook yet, is the sensors that works for the FaceID can’t reach as long from the screen to your face. You will have to sit closer to the screen than normally for FaceID to work.
    So if they should put FaceID into a MacBook, they should make it so it would work in longer distances.

      Kart G No, not even close... Windows laptops and android phones use face recognition but much less reliable. They registrów less details (face ID for comparison is more secure than ANY fingerprint ścian, with many times more scanner points) and Windows laptops dont do depth map. You can fool it with curved printed photo. They check only image and sometimes if its flat or not, but without actual scape of your face

      One thing to note is that a) you can get it for a lot less now and b) they upped the display brightness from 300 to 400 nits recently which makes it a lot brighter. Not as bright as the one in the pro but still fine now I guess.

      What are you talking about? In America, the 2018 Air and Pro are at least $400 apart. The 2017 Pro and 2018 Air are closer in price and that's actually a debate. However, they are very similar in almost every aspect which sort of justifies the small gap in their prices.
      Personally, I went the new Air. It look great, has a good display now, and would probably last longer than the 2017 Pro assuming you take good care of it. As for performance, both are actually closer than people realize. Even so, I don't really need a high performing device, all I need is a device that can run MacOS as efficiently as possible for as long as possible.

    I think what your saying is just technical things about hardware. I think if you are going to buy a Mac air you might want to use it for a certain mindset. Writing, blogging, Internet use and using it for social media and checking email. Nothing that’s is of heavy use such as Final Cut Pro. or any big applications. I feel its great for a writer or just a net surfing junky. What is everyone’s opinions on this?

  • Joseph Burke
    Joseph Burke Πριν 2 μήνες

    I wouldn't come to rely on a Macbook Air for heavy duty applications. They have zero upgradeability so when apps become more resource intensive in the future, your Macbook Air won't be able to keep up. They are basically designed to become obsolete quickly so you'll get back in line for another one next year when the new, slightly (2-5%) faster model comes out. If you're doing heavy photo/video/audio editing then a used Mac Pro or iMac that you can buy for the same price would be a better solution. Use your lightweight laptop for lightweight applications that you need to be able to use while on the go, but keep your professional grade applications on a professional grade machine at home or at the office.
